2009 was also a milestone for me. It marked 10 years since I left Russia in search of a better life and American Dream just like thousands of immigrants before me. 10 years since I had to start my life all over again. I have found more than I ever hoped for. Since the launch of my debut Collection "Je Ne Regrette Rien" in 2008, I had a privilege of giving several interviews to various publications, as well as making hats for several fashion editorials (more details later). One of the most special interviews for me was the interview for my home town magazine "Where Minsk" which was published in September issue.
I know many of you do not speak Russian and will not be able to read it, but I thought I would post it anyway. It seems like a great way to put a period mark to the decade full of struggles and victories, the decade that change me in so many ways and gave me so much! It felt GREAT! 10 years later to give an interview to the magazine in the city I grew up, loved and had to leave. It felt great to be back. :-)
It made my Mom so very proud! :-) I would like to say thank you to the journalist Victoria Naymova who worked with me on this interview for being so diligent, professional and understanding...Happy New Year to all! Until next year everybody!:-)
